Hey Everyone!

I've got a outdoor family session tomorrow morning. Not a big deal....except we have got 3 inches of rain in the past two days.

It's mom and dad and their 3 kids (6, 4, and 1).

It will be at a local park/forest preserve.

I usually do these family portraits with the family sitting down, etc. Do any of you have any examples or suggestions on posing a family in a standing arrangement that doesn't look boring?

Thanks in advance.

I've been thinking of this situation too, and actually had to postpone 2 family sessions because of rain.
I was wondering how it would look if you took a blanket out or something like they were having a picnic?
It's difficult working in the soup. I'd like to hear suggestions as well.

I would get the standard shot of them walking towards me and away from me. There is a gazebo at this park that I could use, but their portrait last year was in this gazebo.

If the ground is just wet and not standing water, have them sit on black garbage bags and have them tuck the bags far enough under their buns that they don't show from camera angle.
